PIRANHAS, AND GALILEO
York : Little Brown, 2003.
what do you think? Can anyone train piranhas to prefer bananas over
beef? Why would anyone want to? Well, Honoria is about to try
to find out. It's science fair time again and she always goes all
out to win. Shoshei on the other hand is more intent on trying to
figure out how to keep his parents from Japanizing him. Sure he's
Japanese but he was adopted into an Irish Catholic family so he doesn't
exactly feel he needs to change his whole lifestyle. And then there's
Elias. Always trying to live up to his parents expectations.
Elias, Honoria and Shoshei are best friends. And this is the story
of the science fair and their friendship.
